World of Beer, the national chain of taverns known for its massive selection of craft beer both in draft and bottled form, is bringing its summer #WOBTRIP program to a close in style, featuring a premiere brew from Dogfish Head Craft Brewery – Choc Lobster. Normally available only at the Dogfish Head brewpub in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Choc Lobster will be offered at World of Beer tavern locations, making it easy for fans to experience this exceptional brew.
World of Beer taverns will receive a limited quantity of Choc Lobster, with a majority of taverns tapping the beer on August 7th, 2015. Dogfish Head fans are encouraged to check their local WOB tavern location for tapping dates and availability.
“We pride ourselves in offering rare and unique beer experiences to the casual beer drinker, beer connoisseur and everyone in between,” said World of Beer CEO Paul Avery. “We couldn’t be more excited to work in conjunction with Dogfish Head to debut Choc Lobster at retail for all of our customers.”
Originally inspired by an oyster stout, Choc Lobster is a 5.6 percent ABV porter brewed every summer as a seasonal beer. This warm- weather treat is brewed with dark cocoa and lobsters shipped from Dogfish Head’s friends at Ebone Cook Lobster Co., in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. This flavor profile has been described as one of bittersweet chocolate, herbs, and the taste of the ocean on the finish. It has enjoyed recognition from the craft beer community and critics alike, taking home a 2014 Silver Medal at the Great American Beer Festival in the Indigenous Beer category.
“Choc Lobster provides an amazing, decadent, seaworthy beer drinking experience,” said Sam Calagione, founder and president of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. “I am psyched to enjoy glasses of it with my beer brethren at World of Beer.”
All summer long, WOB has been giving patrons the chance to win once-in-a-lifetime beer experiences through its #WOBTRIP platform. Beer fans are invited to upload their summer brew adventures and hashtag using #WOBTRIP when sharing on Twitter and Instagram, to be entered for August’s drawing: a trip to Dogfish Head Brewery. The lucky recipient will taste beers in the usually-off-limits Steampunk Tree House and enjoy a stay at the Dogfish Inn.
At the end of the month, WOB will be selecting the grand prize #WOBTRIP winner, who will receive a cross-country brewery tour for a behind-the-scenes look at Anchor Brewing Company, Breckenridge Brewery and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery.
